Couples Cruise

+ Is this a "swinger's Cruise"?

No and yes. There are "swingers" and non-swingers on board; as well as, nudists and non-nudists, republicans and democrats, Baptists and atheists, and many other types of people. The simple truth is we cater to all of these and many more. We support a diverse base of open-minded couples looking for clothing optional, adults only cruise.

You don't have to be a swinger or a nudist to enjoy our cruises. If you love Mardi Gras, Fantasy Fest, or just enjoy living life to its sexiest and fullest, then a Couples Cruise is right for you!

+ What is a "Swinger"?

First of all, let's define the word "swinger". Swingers are people in relationships that are non-monogamous. Many singles are non-monogamous and no one thinks anything about that. But many people expect couples (especially married ones) to be monogamous.

The simple truth is that most people just aren't wired that way. Plain and simple, people are attracted to other people. That is why there is such a high divorce rate (around 50%). One of the top reasons for this is infidelity. Not being able to have more than one sexual partner has created millions of divorces in this country.

Swingers have found their solution for this: non-monogamy or the practice of couples having more than one sexual partner.

On a Couples Cruise, open-minded couples will be on board looking to meet other couples like themselves. Hoping to start new friendships, re-establish old bonds, and make new friends

+ What does the term "Lifestyle" mean?

In this context, it is a shortened version of "the swinging lifestyle". Many people don't like the words "swing" or "swinger", so they have shortened the phrase to "the lifestyle". This is in an effort to separate their play choices from other words that might invoke negative stereotypes.

+ Is this a "Nude Cruise"?

Another no and yes. First of all, our ship will have a clothing optional pool deck. Our cruise is different from most "nude cruises" because we are open about the fact that this is marketed to couples that are in the "swing lifestyle".

+ Will I have to get naked?

Of course not. You can participate as much or as little as you like. While there will certainly be a lot of couples that do decide to go nude on our pool deck, there will be plenty others that only go topless, some that will be wearing g-string bikinis and yet others that will be fully dressed. This is "Your Cruise", so you get to decide what your comfort level is.

Not only will you be able to sunbathe nude; you will be able to dance on our stripper poles, participate in our sexy contests, and enjoy an atmosphere quite different from a traditional "nude cruise". And don't forget, we have the largest play areas at sea.

+ Where is nudity allowed?

Full Ship Takeover Cruises:

Nudity is allowed on the main pool decks, the sun decks and in our play area. Ladies can also be topless in our nightclub. Clothing or cover-ups are required everywhere else on the ship (casino, bars, restaurants, theater, elevators and any other public areas).

Group Cruises:

Nudity will vary depending on the group charter. Please check the individual cruise page for details. Know that we always do our best to secure an area for nudity, as this is an important part of a Couples Cruise ®. And remember what happens behind clothes doors, in your cabin, is up to you.

+ Will public sex be allowed?

No. We encourage people to be sexy but we cannot allow public sex for two reasons:

  1. The ship's crew will be serving drinks, food and cleaning up after everyone. They don't need to be subjected to public sexual activities.
  2. We run a classy cruise and we believe that there is a time and a place for everything. We believe that the place for sexual activities is behind closed doors. So please have fun but if you want to take it one step further: head back to your cabins or go to the designated private play areas on board the ship.

+ What goes on in the designated Private Play areas?

As much or as little as you like. We simply provide a safe, clean and classy place for everyone to meet; from there, it is up to you. If you want to participate in a sexual activity with another consenting couple, then that is up to you. If you want to be part of a group or simply watch, then that is your choice.

+ Will I have to do anything with anyone if I don't want to?

Again, of course not. You decide when or if you want to participate, the universal saying in the "swing lifestyle" is "No means No". If anyone is pushy or doesn't understand this saying, then contact one of our cruise staff members and they will deal with the other passenger. Anyone that will not follow our rules, can be put off the ship at the next port with no refund.

+ Do I have to be a "swinger" or in the "lifestyle" to go on this cruise?

Absolutely not. This cruise is for experienced couples as well as those that are just curious. We will have several speakers on board teaching informative seminars that will help new couples understand and find their place in this lifestyle.

We are looking for couples that like to dress sexy, that like to go out and flirt, that might be exhibitionists or voyeurs, that may have experience with a threesomes or moresomes or noexperience at all. We are looking for other fun couples, are you one?

+ Will I have to do anything with anyone if I don't want to?

Again, of course not. You decide when or if you want to participate, the universal saying in the "swing lifestyle" is "No means No". If anyone is pushy or doesn't understand this saying, then contact one of our cruise staff members and they will deal with the other passenger. Anyone that will not follow our rules, can be put off the ship at the next port with no refund.

+ What if I am not sure if this is right for us?

How long are you going to let life (and our ship) pass you by? Life is short and we aren't getting any younger. What's the worst thing that could happen? You go on a great cruise and find out that this lifestyle isn't for you. Or, you go on a great cruise and meet new friends, grow as a couple, explore things that you didn't even know existed, and have the time of your life!

+ Should I surprise my wife/husband?

No, absolutely not. There is one thing that we have learned in life, in most cases the only surprise that is welcome is a dozen roses. Before you will even be allowed to get on board the ship, you will both have to sign a form that says that you understand that this is a "swing" theme cruise (and we aren't talking about swing dancing!). That is certainly not the best time for your partner to figure out what you have booked them on.

+ What is the age group that will be on board?

Our events and cruises draw a wide variety of ages. While we do believe that you are only as old as you feel, our median age is probably 45-50, but we certainly have a lot of couples in their 30s & 40s as well as those in their 50s, 60s, and beyond.

+ Do we have to be married to attend?

No, the only thing we require is that you be 21 or older and that you sign our Conduct Policy

+ Are there any rules I should be aware of?

Yes, you must have fun and enjoy yourselves! You will also have to read and sign our Conduct Policy.

+ Does the cruise line know what kind of charter this is?

Yes, of course. Every cruise ship and hotel we produce events at knows exactly what kind of event is going on. We have worked with their legal departments to make sure that our rules and code of conduct matches their own goals and guidelines. Other cruise promoters have been banned from other cruise lines because they weren't upfront about their customers or they didn't establish a proper code of conduct for their guests.

We have proved ourselves with our smaller group charters and we have earned the right to charter a full ship.

+ When do I need to book?

That depends on the type of cabin you want. The bigger suites to go very quickly and the Junior Suites soon after that. If you want an inside cabin you have some time before you need to book, but when the cabins are gone, they're gone. We recommend at least putting down a deposit as soon as possible, so you won't miss out on this exciting adventure.

+ How much are the taxes, tips, and fees?

The port charges, taxes, gratuities, document, administration, and security fees vary for each cruise. Please refer to the each individual cruise for the exact amounts.

+ Where can I book?

Right here! Just click the Book Now in the upper right hand corner and select the cruise you are interested in. You can start your reservation now.

+ What if I have to cancel?

Refer to our standard cancellation policy for details.

+ Are airfares included?

You must make your own flight arrangements to the port city. There are taxis andshuttles that can be taken to most ports. There are also hotels close by that may offer free shuttle service to and from the cruise terminal. We recommend staying overnight in the port city the day before your sailing; you don't want to miss the boat! Check out our pre cruise hotel for each cruise and meet your fellow passengers early.

+ Can I pick my own cabin?

Yes! You'll have the best chance of getting the cabin you want the earlier you book. If it is important for you to be close to the center, on the fantail of the ship, or in one of the bigger suites, then you'll need to act quickly before your cabin choice is gone.

+ What time does the ship set sail?

With most sailings, you must be on board by 3:30 pm, and the ship pulls away from the dock at 4:30 pm. Normally you can begin boarding the ship at 11:30 am.Check the Itinerary & Ports page for each individual cruise for departure time.

+ What about hurricanes?

We purposefully book all of our cruises outside the height of hurricane season. Sometimes ships have to be re-directed due to a storm, but this is usually done at the last minute, (since storms are unpredictable). These cruise lines and their crews have been sailing for years, so they know how to deal with inclement weather conditions.

+ How much money do I need to bring?

On board you will not be able to use cash, a cruise ship card that is also your cabin room key will be issued to you when you board the ship. You will use this card like a credit card. At the end of the cruise, you can settle up in cash or for a quicker departure, simply give them a credit card to charge the balance.

+ Can I get a handicap accessible cabin?

I have heard those are bigger."]Only those with valid handicaps are permitted to book handicap accessible cabins. If you have such an injury, ailment or handicap, please let us know when you book.

+ What about special Couples Cruise shore excursions?

We will be offering unique Couples Cruise shore excursions, some of which will be clothing optional. You will be able to book these in advance through the ship. We will e-mail you the details of these excursions closer to the sailing date.

+ Can I pick either late or early seating in the dining room?

Full Ship Takeover Cruises:

You can simply eat when you wish. The main dining room will have open seating every evening, so you can eat early one night and late the next! It's your cruise; you decide when you want to eat.

Group Cruises:

We reserve tables at both the early and late dinner seatings. You will be asked what seating you prefer, and you can choose to sit at any of our tables during your seating time. You may also be able to change your seating time while on board your cruise, just ask one of our friendly Couples Cruise staff.

+ Will I get seasick?

Today's ships are huge and have advanced stability controls to lessen the amount of movement; this helps avoid seasickness.There are also some over-the-counter medications that can help make sure your cruise is a stress-free and healthy experience. We recommend that you consult with your doctor if you fear that you are prone to motion sickness. However, most passengers do not have any problems being at sea.

+ Do I need a passport?

Yes, most definitely. For more information on passports, go to http://www.Travel.State.Gov

+ Will my mobile phone/internet work on the ship?

Yes, but for a price. You can use your mobile phone while on board but it can be quite costly. We recommend that you save your phone calls until you get into a port, as well as, check with your wireless carrier to see what international rates they offer. For a cost, wireless internet is available in several areas of the ship along with computer terminals for your use.

+ Do I need to worry about fuel surcharges?

Not if you have already booked with us! Any couple that is booked with us is protected from any future fuel surcharges. If a cruise line does impose a fuel surcharge on one of our cruises, they have to notify us. Only the future bookings made after this notification will be subject to the fuel surcharge. This charge will be clearly stated in our "Additional Fees" section, which includes port charges, government taxes and fess, security, pre-paid gratuities, and any additional surcharges.



Book early

feel the security of having your tickets ready in your hands. 



arrive early

It may seem like a great idea to save a few bucks by arriving at the port city the day of the cruise, but don’t chance it! Arriving at the departure port city a day or two prior to departure means you won’t miss out on a moment of the fun.



avoid DELAYS

We strongly advise our passengers to come into the departure port city at least one day early. For port cities outside of the United States, we recommend arriving two days early. We can't tell you how many people try to fly or drive in on the day of a cruise, only to run into troubleand end up missing the boat. 






We will be offering a variety of Meet & Greets, receptions, and opportunities to meet your fellow cruisers. You can catch up with old friends and make new ones before you even get on board. So don't even think of coming in on the day of your CouplesCruise®, it just isn't worth the risk.




life happens

We highly recommend getting travel insurance. Sometimes life happens, and just like car and health insurance, trip insurance is another way to have peace of mind.

We can't say enough about the benefits of packing all your creams and liquids into sandwich zip baggies. Kind of like a packing "condom". If things spill, they won't get on your clothes. Also, take some spare ones for wet bathing suits.


Don't forget to clean out your wallets; you probably have cards in there that won't be used in Mexico! They don't take checks either, so leave your checkbook at home. Bring a photo ID card, as well as your passport. Some ports need a photo ID with your cruise ship card, to get back on the ship. DO NOT carry your passport around, especially in port! Can't stress this enough.


A photocopy of your passport picture page can come in very handy if you lose it. Copies of your credit card numbers and the lost or stolen card phone number are good to have too. Of course, keep them in a different place than the originals.


A carry-on bag (with shoulder straps) will come in handy for many reasons;bring what you need for the first afternoon on the ship (before the luggage arrives) and for the last night on the cruise. On that last night, your luggage has to be placed outside your cabin by midnight (or earlier), which leaves all sorts of odds and ends to carry off the next day. You may even use it to go to a beach or for shore excursions.## + THE SHOES MAKE THE CRUISE – BRING THE RIGHT FOOTWEAR"]Anyone who has gone cruising before knows that the biggest asset to enjoying tours and excursions is the shoes. Comfortable, broken in, flat, and probably not too gorgeous. But if you wear them all day as youtrudge through narrow streets and up hillsides, you'll be a happy camper. Reserve your heels for the nighttime.


Disposable cameras are great for excursions, just to keep your digital camera safe. And always keep your camera in your cabin safe when you’re not using it


Especially when going on an excursion, take a wet facecloth in a zip lock bag. Never know when you want to wipe your hands or face with a clean cloth. Also take a little bottle of the hand sanitizer. If your day involves getting wet take a large zip lock for your wet swimsuit.


The most organized way to pack is to choose clothes for actual activities and events. Most of this trip will be very casual with lots of beachwear in the daytime. For the evening, you'll want to look at the nightly themes and dinner dress, to help you decide what to pack.

Also, a great tip for those coming into the departure port city a couple of days early: pack all your needs for those days in one separate suitcase. That way, you only have to dig into that one suitcase.## + LUGGAGE"]When you get to the port, the luggage is given to the luggage handlers to put onto the ship (with 20,000 other pieces!). There are special luggage tags that you will put on your bags, which will identify them. The bags should arrive at your cabin before dinner (but could be there as late as midnight, so make sure you have something to wear to dinner in your carry-on).


Carry ALL your valuables with you, along with medications and your camera. This includes your cruise documents, cruise ship card, passport, photo ID, credit cards, and any other identification you might need. There is a time lapse before your luggage arrives in your cabin, so put the things you need immediately in your carry-on bag.


Anytime after 11:30 am is the best time to arrive at the port. Arriving to the port in the middle of the afternoon is the best way to avoid the crowds. You must check in before 3:30 pm or your reservation will be canceled! When you check into the desk at the port, your identification will be checked against the information you put in for your cruise documentation (make sure you fill this out correctly and the name and spelling matches your identification documents).

An imprint of your credit card will be taken for your on-board expenses. You will then be given your cruise ship card. This card looks like a credit card and indeed it is, but it is also your cabin door key. You will not need money on board, just your cruise ship card to charge all of your purchases to your account.

The only use for money on board will be in the casino. You can also pay with cash for your account when you come onboard instead of charging your credit card. This saves you from worrying about your money and keeping it in your safe.


Your cruise account can be viewed at any time on your interactive in-cabin TV. Just follow the instructions on the screen and it will show exactly what you have charged on your account.

By 6:00 am on the last day of the cruise, an invoice is delivered to your cabin. You can keep these charges on your credit card (given at check in) or you can pay cash at the Guest Relations but this line can get long.


In each cabin you will find a safe for your use. You will find them to be extremely good in safeguarding your valuables while on board: jewelry, passports, money, credit cards, cameras & airline tickets.


Before we sail, the ship has a mandatory Muster Drill, which is like a fire drill. All passengers MUST attend this drill. The best thing about the drill is we sail immediately afterwards and that means... "Sail Away Party"!


Everyone is charged gratuities in advance, so they will be pre-paid the minute you arrive on board. You may add additional amounts for any of the ship's staff that gave you exceptional service or made your stay on the ship a memorable one. There will be envelopes left in your cabin on the last night of the cruise for gratuities. Since you already pre-paid them before you sailed, you do not need to do anything with this envelope, but it’s always nice to be a bit generous to the crew that took care of you for a week.

The pre-paid gratuities cover your wait staff in the main dining area and your cabin steward. You still have to pay gratuities for alcoholic drinks, spa services and other amenities. Note: a small tip is usually automatically added to your bill, so make sure you check your receipt and add any additional gratuity that you would like.## + LAUNDRY"]There are no self-service laundry facilities on board. However, laundry service is available. Put your laundry in the bag provided, fill out the laundry form (it will have prices on it), and simply leave it on your bed. Your cabin steward will take it from there. Usually, the laundry will be back the next day, cleaned and pressed. If you need a certain article for the next day, check with the cabin steward to make sure it can be returned in time (if you turn in laundry late in the day, you may not see it for two days).

Keep in mind: clothes irons are not supplied or even allowed on board,as they are a fire hazard (and fire on a ship is bad).## + INTERNET"]There is an Internet cafe on board, where you can purchase packages of minutes to use while onboard (either with their computers or your laptop). The more minutes you buy at one time, the less they charge you per minute. Some of our more intimate sailings include free Wifi, check each particular ships page for more information.


There are unlimited fountain soft drink packages you can purchase before the cruise or once on board. For the price of a few sodas per day, you can have unlimited fountain drinks –it’s a great deal for soda drinkers!

They also offer discounted wine packages. If you like wine, we recommend getting a wine package. You can have wine at dinner to share with friends or make new ones.If you don't finish your wine, you can have them deliver it to your cabin for you.

Alcoholic drink packages are also available on most ships. Some of our more intimate sailings included all beverages.## + CANDLES"]We mentioned the fire hazards of using an iron, well the same goes for candles. They are a big no-no! You can use the flameless, flickering LED candles if you want to set the mood in your cabin.## + EVENING DRESSING GUIDELINES "]Casual:
